Either taken as an offensive term, or a proud to be image, backpack rapper is interesting and something that I've been looking into recently. From shockg.com: Backpack-Rapper (n.) An emcee who limits his focus to non-violent, non-sexist, non-material, non-threatening, politically-correct, college, freestyle hip-hop only. Now I've always been one to talk about anything and everything, or mostly nothing , but to say "backpack" rappers are people who aren't "cool" enough, is kind of ignorant.. BENZINO (aka Beans) Lyrics: No one would care about your complicated rhyme style Another backpack rapper out of style Don't let me have to backslap your mom's if you smile Others saying that backpack rappers are nerdy..I just don't get it. Just because they aren't gangters, is that something that shouldn't be brought up and put out today? I like all styles, and all types of things - hip hop and rap..especially ones that are fresh and intelligent.. Anyways, whats your thought on "Backpack Rappers"?...To me it's just another way, and so be it. If you have any more information or things to say please do so..
